This was my interpertation of the paul sellars cabinet from his wood working master classes. I badley needed more storage for my small shop so this was the result. Made from oak with oak plywood for the door panels. 5 coats of shelac then topped with johnsons furnature wax. Handles were made from a small piece of curley maple i had left over from another project. A complete reorganization of the shop happened because of this project and helped to improve my work flow. Thanks for looking.

Very nice looking cabinet!

I am a big Paul Sellers fan too. I could watch his videos all day long. I learned so much from his videos and his website e.g. about using handplanes, sharpening chisels and plane irons, mortise and tenon joints,...

Wish i had the time to practice more of the hand work. 40 year old pipefitter with a family = instead of dovetailed casework i used dominos for the main carcass. At some point when i have more time i will definately do more of pauls projects true to form but for now i can only do what time allows.

Nice work, if you are like me now that you have re-organized everything it becomes an issue remembering where you put it….. LOL
